Long DescriptionCecil Wooten has produced the first translation into any modern langauage of a key treatise of the ancient world. He provides a faithful English translation of Hermogenes' analysis based on a reliable Greek text established by Rabe at the beginning of this century and includes a substantial scholarly introduction and notes that will help the reader better understand Hermogenes, his exposition, and the historical and cultural context in which it was produced.

Hermogenes' work is both systematic and complex. He outlines, with almost mathematical precision, seven basic types of ideal forms of style -- Clarity, Grandeur, Beauty, Rapidity, Character, Sincerity, and Force -- some of which he breaks down into subtypes. Wooten explains how the stylistic system works, what it has in common with other systems developed in antiquity, and the special problems it presents to the translator.

Wooten also provides two short essays. The first compares the system of stylistic analysis developed by Hermogenes with those of earlier critics, in particular Cicero and Dionysius of Halicarnassus. A single passage of Demosthenes is analyzed according to these three systems in order to illustrate how Hermogenes' system best captures its subtleties and nuances. The second essay discusses Hermogenes' concept of panegyric oratory and how it relates to the larger problem of secondary rhetoric.

This translation makes On Types of Style accessible to classicists as well as Byzantinists, students and scholars of the Renaissance, rhetoricians, and, more broadly, students of literary criticism at any level.

So you want to upload product images but you don't want to do it manually. Our system allows you to upload through automation if you have an active data feed account.

The Basics

You will need to send the file along with some other infomation in the form of a POST to our web server. You do not need to log-in or keep track of cookies. You will need to pass your keycode with every file you try to upload.

It is important that you check the results of every upload to make sure things are going correctly. Normally, if things go right you will get back an HTTP response code of 200 and the word "Success!" as the only content. If things go wrong, the HTTP response will be 400 or some value other han 200 depending on the problem. You can examine the content that is sent back for more details about the error.

When you send a POST request to http://eandata.com/upload_image.php with the the following required fields.

As long as the product exists in our system and there is not already an image associated with the product, the file should upload and be resized. All images are stored in PENDING mode until they are approved by a human. Users may be able to access the pending images but they will get a warning before the image is displayed to them.

Coding Samples And Links

We simply can't give you every possible way to access our data through automation but we can offer some code samples or at a minimum links to other resourses that will help you get your project going.

If you have other resources that you would like us to add to our collection, or you find that our links are broken, please use the link at the bottom of the screen to contact us. Comments are also much appreciated.
